Back before everyone owned a computer, there was a certain mystery about them, which, of course, made for some seriously fun movies. Unfortunately, using an actual computer isn’t that exciting and watching someone use one is even less so, so Hollywood did what it does best…lied about it via some super cheesy graphics and implausible techno-babble to make “Hacking” seem incredibly sexy and dangerous.
And this super-cut of 80s high-tech hacking from Found Item Clothing epitomizes the very best of those films (although, I don’t agree that Blade Runner should be included, but what do I know).
Get ready to be amazed at what a TRS-80 can do when given to a nerd.
